Nextcloud 17 was released at end of September 2020 and offers various new features and improvements.


Remote wipe

Remote wipe allows users and administrators to forcibly clean files from remote devices, for example in case they are stolen. The video shows how easy it is to clean devices when you need to!

Nextcloud Text

Introducing Nextcloud Text, our new distraction-free, collaborative rich text editor. You can see how Text makes working with others easier than ever in the video.

Secure view

This release comes with improvements to secure view like enforceable document watermarks based on tags, groups, type of share and other properties. Watch the video to learn more!

And much more, including:

  •  Setup two-factor authentication after first login, admins can create one-time login tokens in the web UI and delegate this to group admins
  •  Secure mailbox in Outlook Add-in
  •  LDAP write support makes it possible to manage users from Nextcloud
  •  S3 versioning support, IBM Spectrum Scale integration and Global Scale with Collabora Online

note that we roll out new versions incrementally and usually wait a few weeks before we do so. This helps us catch any problems before it impacts too many users! If you wait for the updater to notify you, it can take some weeks. If you don’t want to wait, you can switch to the Beta channel, refresh the page, update to 17, and switch back!
